I don't think this is related to the Toshiba problem. I played around
with accessx... . I don't get double letters except with accessx.

Yes, I've enabled "XkbDisable" and the galeon (the only really reproduceable
prob.) issue was gone. Maybe galeon couldn't display everything fast
enough, but cached the keys.

I'll try to get more information about it (especially about the workspace
switching thing). I'll let you know if I've found something.
